Date: 11 August 2018
Venue: Orlando Stadium
Orlando Pirates get their MTN8 campaign underway against defending champions SuperSport United in a quarter-final clash on Saturday night.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h30.
The Buccaneers have raised expectations for silverware, after finishing an impressive second in the league last season.
The Soweto giants started their league campaign with a 1-1 draw against Highlands Park, before grinding out a 1-0 win over Chippa United in midweek.
On the other hand, Matsatsantsa a Pitori did not have the best starts in league after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Cape Town City in the opening weekend of the 2018-19 campaign, although they returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over AmaZulu.
In desperate need of refreshment or reinforcements, Tembo could unleash new signing Zambian forward Ghampani Lungu who was handed his debut against AmaZulu on Wednesday night.
Nothing could separate these two side when they met last season, as they played out goalless draw in both Absa Premiership clashes.
